Stuck in December madness? Dashing about shopping, finishing off work, maybe a hectic social calendar? At this time of year it is all too easy to opt for the quick fix of a takeaway. That doesn’t do a lot of good for waistlines or wallets, both of which can be strained by the approach of Christmas.
Take a few moments to check that you have the items for this easy winter warmer. This is a protein packed vegetarian dish – meat and fish eaters can ring the changes by adding anchovies or cooked meatballs.
1 medium onion
2 large potatoes
2 tins green lentils
2 garlic cloves
This is ideal boxing day style food actually, so I made it today but added leftover turkey and veg too, plus a spoonful of curry paste. Delicious, and a nice contrast to Christmas Dinner.
I would suggest using aubergines rather than mushrooms if you don't like them. It's got a similar meaty texture.
happily these recipes generally aren't too exacting about what goes in - it is whatever is handy in the storecupboard or looked reasonable at the supermarket! The one in the photo looks like someone added beetroot but it would probably still work.
This sounds lovely, and it's just a shame none of my family likes mushrooms except me!
